Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this facility performed well in short-term care. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our best grades. With our short-term care score, we attempt to craft a valuable barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also excelled in inspections. We gave it an A- for that area. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. Our nursing score is based on numerous factors. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last area we assessed is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a B. This nursing home didn't turn out to have any weak categories. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 88.679245 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a bit less than we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, we were pleased to find nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
